're going to pass tax cuts for everybody under $250,000. so it's going to happen. >> i hope you and harry reid enjoy that vote because you're not going to get it in the house. >> you keep talking about -- >> wait, wait, wait. >> what vote are we not going to get in the house? >> you keep talking about the majority of the majority, which -- but that's not necessarily what has to happen this time around. it can be a minority plus the democrats. >> do you think that john boehner is going to go out and cobble together a minority of the republicans and the democrats? >> he thinks it's in his self-interest he will. >> but, cokie, if he does a dael with a smaller part of his group, he's not speaker anymore. >> speakers have done that for generatio generations. it was abhorrent. that was the oddity and to put together different coalitions on different issues is normal. >> i guess there's a chance he would lose his speakership. his speakership or the country. it's not a vote we have to get in the house is what i'm saying, joe, the a.m. tern tiff. we come back and say we want to cut taxes. do those

with the republicans and harry reid in the senate. you're just not seeing it. >> you don't see enough of it. curiously, the markets -- investors are actually increasing their exposure which is kind of contrarian to your point. i do believe to julia's point, you'll see a receding or retreat in that attitude over the next several days and few week ifs we can't get ourselves closer. i remain optimistic. the president wants a legacy and his legacy depends on this. and two proposals have been put forth. they resemble each other in terms of the amount they've asked for. i give republicans credit. they understand revenue has to be part of the deal. the question remains whether it's marginal rates or limiting deductions. adults should be able to come together and get that deal done. >> what happens here in the short term and long term. the short-term thing's not going to be much of a solution. >> no, i don't think so. and mark halperin, you talk about these deals possibly being $2 trillion. we went $5 trillion in debt over the past four or five years. another $5 trillion in debt over the next four to five yea
